Proven Benefits In 6 Weeks
The commitment is fundamentally to yourself. A gift you give yourself. Safe2Heal acts on your behalf providing information, structure, guidance and support for you to develop a regular practice inside the life you lead today.
The core mindfulness practice is meditating for 15 minutes every day. Meditation is simply sitting comfortably in a quiet place free from distraction. Watching yourself breath and letting the constant stream of thoughts and emotions come and go. Like the sky watching the weather. Still with no judgment as the action passes by inside and outside of you. It can be surprisingly hard to do, but the benefits are outstanding!
15 minutes a day over six weeks promotes healing:
- Activate the parasympathetic part of your nervous system that nurtures and balances your well-being
- Decrease the amount of stress related cortisol produced
- Reduce your respiration and heart rate
- Reduce your metabolic rate of expending energy
- Increase blood flow in your brain
- Increase activity in the left pre-frontal cortex of your brain (observed in happier people)
- Strengthen your immune system
- What is meditation?
Meditation is substituting another object of attention for the habitually haphazardly roaming mind. Simply focus on something like your breath instead of the continual cascade of thoughts, commentary and judgments that take up your attention. Instead attention is placed on a sound, object or your breath. When your attention wanders, you notice the distraction, let it go and bring your attention back to your object of attention such as a sound, an object or image, or your breath.
The three steps in meditation are 1) placing your attention on your breath (object of attention), 2) allowing thoughts to be as they are and 3) when you notice being absorbed in thought, let go and start again. Forgive yourself early and often! Laughing at yourself encouraged!
- What are some misconceptions about meditation?
You have to stop thinking? Not at all! Quite the opposite. Your mind is welcome to the party just as it is. What’s interesting is what happens when you learn to just observe your thoughts like the sky watching the clouds. Not reacting but relaxing instead. By just watching – your interior landscape expands which leads to discoveries like you are more than you think.
Meditation is a form of self-help / self improvement? No it’s much more than that. First by accepting the form the moment takes you accept things including yourself just as they are. Meditation is about acceptance of what is – not forcing any particular outcome. Meditation helps us discover who we are – not dictate how to be. Not a life hack, escape or shortcut but quite the opposite a path to discovering our true nature.
- How does a meditation practice impact my life?
A meditation practice helps you like yourself more, soften to who you are and develop true confidence by accepting, embracing and knowing yourself – the courage to be who you are. The three continuous steps of meditating create precision, openness and magic!
Placing your attention on your breath cultivates precision, the ability to focus and pay attention. Precision is mindfulness – the ability to place attention on the object of your choosing and hold it there. Meditation helps you see, think, speak, and decide more clearly.
Allowing thoughts to be as they are creates space for true wisdom and insight to emerge. You soften, your heart opens and you feel more. Openness is a gesture of great bravery! Opening to the realm of possibility which by definition is not full of thought. True wisdom, love, insight, creativity and innovation are not things that can be built – but things that arrive when you create space, cultivate attention and become more receptive to see new things.
When you notice being absorbed in thought and let go you become more attuned to the magic of what’s happening now. Opinions, hopes and fears dissolve. You inhabit the vibrancy and magic of your own life unfolding now. Your creative expression and the life you experience comes out of the wisdom, insight and love you are.
